This is the second of eight episodes of Sustain267 Podcast, we share with you conversations that included Africans from the 2021 Global South Women’s Forum on Sustainable Development hosted by International Women’s Rights Action Watch Asia Pacific, a feminist organisation committed to the full realisation of women’s human rights through the pursuit of equality.

In this episode, WoMin African Alliance screened their award-winning film, Women Hold up the Sky. Through the eyes and experiences of women impacted by coal, oil, and mega-infrastructure projects in South Africa, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Women Hold Up the Sky explores stories of resistance and communities in the active struggle to take back control of their land, their rights, their bodies, and their lives. The screening was followed by a reflection on the film’s themes as well as the process of making the film, and building analytical linkages, connections, and solidarities with other communities and movements engaged in the same struggles for climate justice across Africa and around the world.
